Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo and ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif left for Kot Lakhpat prison with his entourage Tuesday evening, following the expiry of his six-week bail in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills corruption reference.
Nawaz's daughter Maryam and nephew Hamza Shehbaz, along with Mohammad Zubair, Talal Chaudhry and other party leaders, have been accompanying the former prime minister.
Hundreds of PML-N workers turned up on the occasion to express solidarity with the party supremo and showered his vehicle with rose petals.
Maryam tweeted several videos of Nawaz's loyalists, who gathered to express their support for their leader, and said the passion of party workers was unbelievable.
Earlier, jail officials reached Jati Umra to escort the former prime minister to the prison.
